As Jesus is the cornerstone upon which the Church is built, so are his teachings the unifying cornerstone of Christian doctrine.

Universal Principle

Raising Children To
Love Their Neighbors
Every major religion has a version of the golden rule (Matthew 22:34-46). Perhaps it is so important that God inspired it in other world religions even if they have not yet come to know their Savior Jesus. Judaism, Islam, Jainism, Confucianism, Hinduism and Buddhism are some of them. It is as if this principle is so basic and fundamental that God did not want to leave any creed or religion with an excuse for not knowing it (Romans 1:19-21). Even atheists who claim that they don’t believe in God admit its fundamental importance. Some people may object that God has nothing to do with religions other than Christianity. But let’s think about it. If God also believes and follows the principle of loving his neighbor, why would he not want to spread such an important universal principle universally?
